"It all matters. That someone turns out the lamp, picks up the windblown wrapper, says hello to the invalid, pays at the unattended lot, listens to the repeated tale, folds the abandoned laundry, plays the game fairly, tells the story honestly, acknowledges help, gives credit, says good night, resists temptation, wipes the counter, waits at the yellow, makes the bed, tips the maid, remembers the illness, congratulates the victor, accepts the consequences, takes a stand, steps up, offers a hand, goes first, goes last, chooses the small portion, teaches the child, tends to the dying, comforts the grieving, removes the splinter, wipes the tear, directs the lost, touches the lonely, is the whole thing. What is most beautiful is least acknowledged. What is worth dying for is barely noticed." - Laura McBride

"He was tall and quick and he moved as beautifully as a cat. His yellow hair was sun-bleached almost white and his eyes were blue. They saw Laura and opened wide. Then a flashing grin lighted up his whole face and he threw the ball to her. Inside the window, Laura, Mary and Minnie all watched him throwing the ball and leaping to catch it. He was not as handsome as black-haired Ben, but there was something about him. He was always good-natured and his grin was like a flash of light. It was like the sun coming up at dawn; it changed everything." - Laura Ingalls Wilder
In England, he always visits a special hospital for blind children. There's a little girl there who has sort of taken him over. One day, she took him for a walk in the garden to show him the flowers she planted, just as a strong wind came up. He told her, "Don't be startled - the wind's blown hair over your eyes - I'll pull it away." She asked, "What color is the wind?" He was stunned for a moment, then he said, "Sweetheart, the wind moves so fast that nobody has ever been able to find out." - Frank Sinatra's wife, quoted in Look magazine
